## Definition:

The shape of a distribution is characterized by its number of peaks and by its possession of symmetry, its possibility to skew, or its uniformity.

## Summary:

The shape of a statistical distribution can be:

SYMMETRICAL

• A distribution that is not skewed.
• It is also known as the “Normal Distribution”.
• It is perfectly symmetrical.
•  The mean, media, and mode are having the same value and located at the peak and center of the distribution.

NEGATIVE SKEW

• The long tail of the curve falls on the negative side of the curve.
• It is also known as the “Skewed to the left distribution”.
•  The mean of the distribution is located at the left side of the peak.

POSITIVE SKEW

• The long tail of the curve falls on the positive side of the curve.
• It is also known as the “Skewed to the right distribution”.
•  The mean of the distribution is located at the right side of the peak.

A distribution can also be shaped depending on its flatness and/or uniformity.

Flat – All scores are having equal frequency. Another type of symmetric distribution.
Bimodal – A distribution with two modal scores.
Multimodal – A distribution with more than two modal scores.
